Set at a therapeutic boarding school, A Bitter Pill to Swallow tells the story of two teens and two adults both overcoming their own problems. Janina has trouble fitting in, and Devante has anxiety from a traumatic experience. Gail is frustrated by the cruel place she was working, and Dr. Lutkin is haunted by the mistakes of his past. As each person goes about their journey of healing, they will begin to unravel a medical mystery. Will this mystery change the life of one patient and doctor forever? Or will the school be shut down forever? 

Opinion: 

A Bitter Pill to Swallow is a page-turner that leaves you wanting more. It was easy to relate to the characters because they all had problems and none of them were perfect. I found this book moving since it was about people overcoming mental health problems. One thing I didn't like about the book was how sometimes you couldn't tell which character's point of view you were reading since it never told you. I would recommend this book to others because it is a heartwarming story of people overcoming what some might say is impossible.

Content Rating:

Content rating - some mature content

Explain your content rating: 

I chose this rating because some events in the book might make smaller children scared. There is some gun violence and death that might be too mature for little kids.
